European Union may list JeM Chief Masood Azhar as global terrorist: Report

NEW DELHI - European Union may list JeM Chief Masood Azhar as global terrorist, media has reported.

Talks are on at the European Union to list Jaish-e Mohammed chief Masood Azhar as a terrorist, a spokesperson of the German Embassy told NDTV.

A process is currently on to build consensus and getting all 28 member states on board may take some time, he added.

Germany was one of the key countries that decided to co-sponsor the resolution on Masood Azhar at the UN Security Council last week and supports his listing at the European Union.

The initiative came across Europe days after China blocked the move to tag him a "global terrorist" by the United Nations Security Council. by Taboola link: Sponsored Links link: . link the Road with Oon Jin Teik - Special Feature by LexusPortfolio Magazine link

Last week, France, which had moved the resolution at the UN, banned him at national level putting a freeze on his assets.

Emmanuel Macron's government also said it would "raise the issue with our European partners" to include him in the list of people involved in terrorism.

The UN resolution was originally brought forward by the US, UK and France.
